Scottsdale, Ariz. – August 8, 2016 – StandardAero Business Aviation's Houston MRO facility recently completed a record turn-around time milestone by completing three simultaneous TFE731 engine Core Zone Inspections (CZIs) for a Falcon 900 corporate operator – all in under 15 days – through the company's FASTLANE™ service program. The CZIs took place while the company also concurrently performed required airframe Owner Controlled Inspection Program (OCIP). As a result of the expedited engine maintenance services, the operator was able to minimize aircraft downtime costs, avoid the use of rental engine assets and return to service immediately.
"It is well known that the industry standard for accomplishing TFE731 CZIs is 30 days," said Marc McGowan, President of StandardAero Business Aviation. "Through our FASTLANE accelerated MRO program, we completed these three CZIs in 9, 13 and 14 days respectively, facilitating the operator's needs to complete both engine and airframe services in record time, thus returning to service as quickly as possible."

The FASTLANE system assesses critical hardware exchange or repair requirements and incorporates exceptionally efficient parts procurement to ensure all components, including critical long-lead items needed for repair, are on hand to provide the industry's fastest OEM authorized TFE731 engine MRO services.
